in politics. my question today, is a reasonable believe that president obama's second term will be similar or different from his first, considering that the same economic crisis still exists, even though you mentioned that the second inauguration is traditionally about more specific, what you want to talk about, now that he no longer has to run for reelection? >> second terms have been filled with totally unpredictable things. franklin roosevelt, you would think he was completely in charge. the first thing he did was asked for support to increase the size of the supreme court. richard nixon took the oath of office after winning a huge victory in 1972. in 1973, he was on top of the world. a year-and-a-half later, he was resigning because of the watergate scandal. there are a lot of things that you cannot predict. you hope that president after the first term are much more in control of what is going on, but circumstances are going to be beyond their knowledge at this stage of the game. i am afraid i cannot predict. second terms have often not been as productive as first terms. ever since the

talked about the various islands and where we had been. that's the role of a persuader is to bring the country along with him. >> reporter: but for president barack obama on the eve of his second term, time may be running out. >> we re-elect a president for four more years but in truth he only gets about a year to 18 months before his effectiveness begins to fade and the jockeying for a successor. so that's about all the time he has to do those last big things that will define a legacy. for this president, his second term agenda means not just winning over the country... >> most people who know me know i'm a pretty frenly guy. >> reporter: ... but also his opponents. the first president who understood inside the belt way persuasion was thomas jefferson who faced politics as polarized as any today. >> he believed, i think rightly, that it is harder to say no to someone when you know them >> reporter: john meacham's latest book is thomas jefferson, the art of power. >> the lesson for president obama from thomas jefferson is to use the dinner table. just bring people around. come to t

president obama has been president is the continual -- a concerted effort to compare himself to president lincoln, a first in his talking about the book that he was reading -- i cannot remember the title of it -- >> king of rivals? caller: now he is taking the inauguration on the lincoln bauble. there is an idea that some callers have made that this president has faced worst consequences or worse situations than previous presidents i think is somewhat absurd. the fact that he is half-black, there is nothing to it. he is the president of united states and is supposed to be president of everybody. unfortunately, i have lost confidence in the politicians in washington, d.c. and i think the people of the united states should continually boat these people out of office on a regular basis until they start doing what they're supposed to do which is represent the people of the united states. we have a democratically elected republic and people need to pull out their history books and find out what that is and realize that when we send them to office, would give them the authority to vote the way

the next four years extremely difficult from a governing standpoint. let's talk about it with chris wilson, a republican consultant, former executive director of the texas republican party and the president of new heights communications. kristi, to you first. candidate obama in 2008 promised to cut the deficit in half by the end of his first term. that hasn't happened. how about by the end of his second? >> well, john, i think what's important to remember is that as president obama is starting his second term, he's doing so in a remarkably strong position with high approval ratings and a great record in his first term. when he started, as we all know, the economy was in the ditch. he was able to successfully get us out of that at the point where last week the u.s. stocks closed at their highest level in five years and was able to pass historic health care legislation. by contrast, republicans have their ratings in the toilet. what that means is that there's probably -- it's going to bode well for their ability to compromise with him and for the president to get a second term agenda passed.
